Literally perfection in a glass and one of those rare wines which is breath-taking. The balance between residual sugar, acidity and minerality is spellbinding. The bouquet is beautifully defined with candied orange, orange blossom, pineapple and honey. As you would expect, the palate offers monumental richness, which is perfectly balanced with amazing precision and a super-long citrus-tinged.

Producer

Situated in the South of the Barsac appellation in Bordeaux, Château Climens is one of the most famous Barsac wines and was granted First Growth status in 1855. It is known as “Lord of Barsac” and produces some of the greatest sweet wines in Bordeaux. The vineyards are 100% Sémillon grapes, which thrive in the gravel and clay soil of the Graves region. The history of Château Climens dates back to the 16th century and has only had 5 owners since this time. In 1971 the château was bought by Lucien Lurton, until 1992 when his youngest daughter Bérénice took over the management of the estate. Château Climens also produces a second wine, Cypres de Climens.

Region

Bordeaux is not only the most famous wine producing region in France but in the world, with the most prestigious châteaux and wines in the industry. Its history dates back to the Roman times and today is the largest producing region of fine wines. Vineyards in Bordeaux are known by châteaux and therefore the name of each individual château is an important brand. 

Many top wines are sold ‘En Primeur’ meaning that they are sold in the barrel prior to bottling. Almost 90% of the wine produced in Bordeaux is red (called ‘Claret’ in the UK) from over 8,500 producers. The main reason for the success of the wine production in Bordeaux is the perfect combination of climate, with long hours of sunshine ideal for ripening the grapes and well-draining gravel soil. Appellations are an important part of the Bordeaux culture and the region has 54 appellations recognized by the AOC, the Appellation d’Origine Controlle.
